    About me

    A London based camera operator and film maker, I work across a range of genres within broadcast and film production especially within documentary, sport, music, corporate and commercial production.

    The situations I have been in have made me an adaptable, quick learning camera operator and assistant, adjusting well to the challenges involved whatever the job may be. I have had the privilege of working with some fantastic and very talented people who have helped me gain the knowledge and skills I have today. I am happy to self-direct, or work as part of a larger team.

    Most of my experience has been with the large sensor cameras, such as the Canon C300, Red Epic, Sony F55, Sony FS700, Arri Alexa, and I also have my own 5D Mk3 kit with a range of lenses and accessories. I do my best to keep up to date with new camera technologies, as well as the all important DIT and data wrangling workflows needed.

    I have had the opportunity of working in various locations around the world, from Europe, to the Middle East, to the USA, and even though I am based in London I am available all over the UK and abroad. I also have bases in Stockholm, Sweden and Toronto, Canada.

    My main aim as a camera operator and filmmaker is to always push my creativity further, continually increasing the enjoyment and enthusiasm I have for cinematography.
